We were there as guests of Matalan, who were hunting for Aintree’s most stylish lady for their Style Contest and showcasing their SS11 collections in an amazing catwalk show. I’m a long-time fan of Matalan so was delighted to see so many must-have pieces strutting down the runway… and even more delighted when the models started dancing!

I was representin’ the Great British High Street (as always) in my H&M dress, ASOS belt and necklace and (after much deliberation) orange patent peeptoes from Next.
The day was curated by a very Alan Partridge-esque Alex Carter (whom I love and adore, precisely for his Alan Partridge-ness), looking very sharp in a Matalan suit…
The Benefit Beauty Bus was on hand for makeovers and touch ups – a must in the blazing sunshine, as even Estee Lauder Double Wear started to slide.
An utterly fantastic day was only improved by the outfits on display. Peacock feathers, hot pink leather, thigh-high splits and plant pot handbags were all outdone by this amazing (and delicious) get up…
Many (too many, if my nap on the train home was anything to go by) Mojitos later and the sun started to set on Ladies Day. Stunning Lystra Adams won the Style Contest dressed in head-to-to Viv Westwood, I kicked off my orange patent peeptoes in favour of the flip flops from my goody bag and ate fast food straight from the box. My so-called glamorous life!
